Professional Training Program

Sonoma Community Resilience Training

Initial Training Program: June 19-22, 2019
Advanced Training Program: July 31-August 3, 2019

The traumatic events of the North Bay wildfires have profoundly affected our individual emotional and physical health, our social functioning, our overall well-being, and the health and security of our community. Unresolved, this distress can damage our health and limit our potential for rebuilding a strong community.

Join diverse Sonoma County community members in this dynamic train-the-trainer program where you will practice evidence-based self-care tools for effectively addressing personal and team stress after the fires, network with peers, and learn an evidence-based model to rebuild a resilient, self-healing, and inclusive Sonoma County. 115 people completed the first cohort in January and are eagerly preparing to implement the training in their workplaces and communities.
